Obituary of Betty Miller West

Betty Lee Miller West, age 90, of Charlotte, formerly of Asheboro passed away peacefully Saturday, September 7, 2019 at Carrington Place in Matthews, NC with her son by her side.

A Randolph County native, Betty was born on Valentines Day, February 14, 1929 to the late James J.

West, moved to Charlotte in 2002 to be near their son.  She is also preceded in death by brothers, Paul and Hal Miller, and sister Leona Peacock.

She is survived by one son, Henry "Hank" West, Jr. of Charlotte, NC, and a number of nieces and nephews.  She also leaves three angels on earth who she dearly loved, Shirley Thornton, Magda Taylor, and Emily Taylor.
